Organisations attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos this month have the potential to eliminate three million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) by switching to low-emission fleets. This is one of the key findings of the first annual Sustainable Fleet Benchmark published today by LeasePlan Corporation N.V., a world leader in fleet management and mobility solutions.

The new Benchmark also underlines the significant contribution that business fleets can make to the fight against climate change and highlights organisations that are already making a difference by switching to sustainable fleets.

Main highlights:

Tex Gunning, LeasePlan CEO, says: "Climate change, and how to prevent it, is one of the major topics at this year’s World Economic Forum meeting in Davos. Around half the cars on the road today belong to companies and a move towards more environmentally friendly fleets would be one of the best ways to reduce global emissions. Corporate fleets must be a part of this conversation. It is as simple as a decision from top leadership saying ‘we will make the switch’, and that can happen today. LeasePlan is committed to helping any organisation that wants to make a positive contribution to this historic challenge.”

Companies at Davos could eliminate 3 million tonnes of CO2 simply by opting for a low-emission fleet - and that’s just the start. The LeasePlan Sustainable Fleet Benchmark shows how all corporate fleets can make a difference in the fight against climate change.
